The Department for Education’s appeals code can be found here.
Most appeals for Buckinghamshire Schools are administered by the Education Appeals Team at Buckinghamshire County Council. If you have any queries about admission appeals, please read the Parents’ Guide below which contains important information and advice.
The Education Appeals Team is independent from the Admissions and Transport Team at the Council. If you have queries relating to: allocations of school places, Waiting Lists, Grammar School Transfer Tests and Selection Reviews, these should be made to the Admissions and Transport Team.
